Project Description

Central Park boat landings

The boat landings at the 72nd Street Lake in Central Park first appeared in the early 1860s, during the period of the Park’s initial construction. These original structures deteriorated over time and by the 1960s they bore little resemblance to their original designs. A series of renderings where produced for the Central Park Conservancy to be used for fundraising purposes. These funds will be used to bring the boat landing structures back to their original designs by Calvert Vaux.
